ACD 703: Report of Illness, Accident, or Death
To provide for timely notification of appropriate persons in the event of illness, accident, or death
Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost of the University
In case of illness, accident, or serious injury of a faculty member or academic professional, the chair/director of an academic unit should be notified immediately. If an injury is serious, the President’s Office also should be notified at once. If the serious injury occurs on campus, the chair/director of a unit should notify the ASU Police Department (ASU PD) immediately. If the condition results in extended absence, the chair/director should notify the dean of the college and the executive vice president and provost of the university.
If a member of the faculty or an academic professional dies, the chair/director of a unit and the President’s Office should be notified at once. If the death occurs on campus, the chair/director of a unit should notify ASU PD and Human Resources. Human Resources will expedite the final payroll check and insurance claim by assisting the family and academic unit in the preparation of necessary forms. To reduce confusion, units are requested to coordinate all assistance with Human Resources. For advice on matters such as life insurance and retirement benefits, the family should be referred to Human Resources.
If death occurs as a result of an accident during the course of employment, the unit chair/director should confer with Human Resources and file an Industrial Commission Accident Report form for workers’ compensation.
In the event of the death of a member of the immediate family of a faculty member or academic professional, the unit chair/director or division head should notify the President’s Office.
